Storyline

One is neat, one is a slob. Both are divorced and need a place to stay. That's how fussy photographer Felix Unger and sloppy sportswriter Oscar Madison end up sharing a New York City apartment. The arguments are endless but funny; it's like watching your parents fight. Written by Jwelch5742

Goofs

The apartment that Felix and Oscar share changes completely from the first few episodes. Since they don't move and the first is clearly larger than the later one, it's an error of continuity. See more »

User Reviews

Fantastic show.
21 May 2002 | by WendyOh!See all my reviews

This is indeed one of the few tv series that are equal too if not better than the film and play it was based on. Simply shot and perfectly played, the scripts and the acting could not be better. These shows are fun to watch now not only for the style of clothing, but also for the fact that it's about two middle aged men! TV show-makers of today would do well to watch and learn from this classic.
